Back In Four

22 02 2009

Inauguration DayIts been just over a month since inaugural insanity gripped Washington, DC. The happy feeling was tangible for days before and after, and it was so exciting to see so many people come together in celebration of a common cause in my adopted hometown. For now the celebrations have subsided, and more serious matters are once again the focus of the nation’s capitol. But for me and many others, the feeling that sprang from this year’s inauguration hasn’t completely left us–people are volunteering to help others, paying more attention to politics, and doing more than ever to be a part of the solution to whatever our problems are. I personally will spend the next few years doing the same, until its time for the inaugural insanity to start all over again.
